NBAA Announces Top 40 Under 40

6 October 2020


As President of the MBAA it is a privilege to share the news today that our own Jessica Belcher was selected as an National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) 2020 Top 40 under 40.          

Across the globe, young people are grabbing the reins of the industry and pushing it to ever-greater heights. NBAA’s Young Professionals in Business Aviation (YoPro) program is once again privileged to shine a light on their efforts.  Described by one nominator as a “true warrior for our industry,” Jessica Belcher is setting the bar for business aviation advocacy. As president of the Minneapolis’ chapter of Women in Aviation International (and committee member with MBAA and NBAA’s Local and Regional Group), Jessica drives awareness and engagement about the industry. She’s passionate about using her talents to show young people the sheer diversity of job options with the industry. “I think business aviation is the best-kept secret in the world,” she said. “I want to give back by spreading the word that we have really cool things going on here.”

To Jessica, your dedication to the MBAA and the entire Aviation Industry is commendable.  On behalf of the MBAA Board of Directors and our members, we congratulate you on receiving this recognition.

More than ever, people want timely access to experts and authorities to help them make decisions about their business aviation operations and other plans. This is especially the case as the business aviation community grapples with the spread of the COVID-19 virus, and that’s the idea behind the NBAA News Hour webinar series – an interactive platform that allows participants to get answers to their pressing operational, legal, medical and other questions from people in the know.

Produced every Tuesday and Friday at 11 a.m. Eastern Time, these webinars touch on considerations including crew scheduling, catering, aircraft cleaning and maintenance, airport and airspace operations, medical advice and more. Each webinar features a host and panelists, all available for an interactive question-and-answer session with participants. All webinars are free and recorded for replay, usually by the next business day.
